A Special Prayer for the Crisis in Ukraine
Now to the gate of my Jerusalem,
The seething holy city of my heart,
The saviour comes. But will I welcome him?
Oh crowds of easy feelings make a start;
They raise their hands, get caught up in the singing,
And think the battle won. Too soon they’ll find
The challenge, the reversal he is bringing
Changes their tune. I know what lies behind
The surface flourish that so quickly fades;
Self-interest, and fearful guardedness,
The hardness of the heart, its barricades,
And at the core, the dreadful emptiness
Of a perverted temple. Jesus come
Break my resistance and make me your home.
"Hosanna, Loud Hosanna"
To Pray for
Continued hope of a peaceful resolution between the Ukraine and Russia
Support and Love for the refugees coming to the UK
Light in the darkness
